Amulet has appointed Kieran Mackie as its new managing director.
Mackie has been a part of the business for five years as its commercial director, responsible for developing and implementing commercial strategy according to the business’s goals and objectives.
He takes over the role of MD from Darren Read, who has been appointed as COO of Churchill Group, Amulet’s parent company.
Mackie has worked closely with Read over the years at Amulet developing the business’s growth path.
Mackie plans to further enhance Amulet as an employer of choice as part of its strategic goals.
This will involve bringing a new generation of talent into the security industry, making a career in security an attractive proposition through training and personal development programs, and fostering a people-focused culture to deliver outstanding service.
Mackie will also build on recent technological innovations at Amulet, such as Project Blueprint, the real-time situational awareness software that is exclusive to Amulet in the private security sector. The combination of a people-first organisation with the latest technology will ensure Amulet clients receive the most effective security solutions.
Kieran Mackie, managing director of Amulet, said: “I am delighted to be taking on the role of MD at Amulet.
“Darren has handed me the reigns at a truly exciting time for our industry, and I look forward to cementing Amulet as the security provider of choice by hiring passionate, personable people to look after our clients.
“A valued, supported and motivated workforce is critical to business success which is why I’ll be focusing on hiring, retaining and developing the top talent available.”
